Coronavirus: LAUSD officials say lack of clear reopening guidance from state hampering negotiations

With the deadline for applying for the state’s Safe Schools for All reopening grant a week away, Los Angeles Unified School District leaders are pressing state and county health officials for a clearer definition as to what constitutes a safe learning environment, saying the lack of consistent guidance is why the district and local teachers union have yet to reach an agreement on returning students to campus.

A 400-Year-Old Ring that Unfolds to Track the Movements of the Heavens

Rings with discreet dual purpose have been in use since before the common era, when Hannibal, facing extradition, allegedly ingested the poison he kept secreted behind a gemstone on his finger. (More recently, poison rings gave rise to a popular Game of Thrones fan theory…) Victorians prevented their most closely kept secrets—illicit love letters, perhaps? Last wills and testaments?—from falling into the wrong hands by wearing the keys to the boxes containing these items concealed in signet rin...

Technology in the elementary music classroom after the pandemic

The pandemic will leave a lasting impression on music education for years to come. Even when the ending of the pandemic is finally in sight, music education will reel from the effects. When it comes to elementary music education, we thrived on incorporating ensemble performances using instruments from ukuleles to xylophones. We adored allowing our students to improvise using movements, chants, poetry, and instruments. We integrated cultural dances with social-emotional learning skills. When the ...
